2016 #7 Found Heart {by Kim Dellow}

2017 Topic 7: Found Objects

Close up of Found Heart hanger by Kim Dellow

Tonight Kim starts our 'found objects' topic with this little hanging piece. A great combination of found elements with a stamp that perfectly complements the theme.

Hi Guys, it is Kim Dellow back on the PaperArtsy blog and I've got to say this is one of my all time favourite themes because I am a compulsive scavenger! I love found objects and I often come back home with my pockets full of rusty bits that find themselves abandoned in the street. 

So for my share I have combined a street-found washer and a large metal grommet with part of an old comic book page to make this little hanger using the electro-heart from the EKD04 stamp set that I designed for PaperArtsy.

I do love playing about with how we view projects and I love the way this one changes depending on if the light source is behind it or in front of it.
See how transluscent the Found Heart hanger by Kim Dellow is

The old rusty washer and large metal grommet are not just part of the design, and fun to look at, but they are functional too.

I've used wire to make the hanger as wire is one of my favourite additions to my three dimensional projects.

And have you spotted the colour and texture from the Royal Blood Infusions in the piece as well?

Thanks Kim, what a great little piece of combined lost treasures, I love that you keep an eye out for them while you are out and about. The ready made rusty bits are perfect with your circuit board heart. ~Darcy

I'm a great fan of 'found objects' - our home is bursting at the seams with them! I love this project and it's great how you've incorporated your stamp designs. I feel inspired now to put some of those found objects to good use. Thank you so much for the inspiration! xx

I'm always hoarding bits and pieces I find for 'Mark making' in my art journaling so this will be a fun theme to join in with.

Love how the rusty washer works with the acrylic, and the industrial look of the heart (like an electronics board) - such a great piece from all angles and in all lighting states.
